A work of superb yet unpretentious film craftsmanship by a past master and an impeccable cast and crew.
This is a piece of fluff that dissolves like a sugar cube as you watch it.
A failed attempt at frivolity.
Like The Grifters and Bound, The Swindle succeeds because, in addition to telling an engaging crime story with vivid characters, it never takes itself too seriously.
Chabrol's 50th film, made with the practiced ease of a master.
The ambiguous pairing of Victor (Serrault) and Betty (Huppert) is both comfortable and playful.
It takes too long to get started and the playful coda is far too precious, but Chabrol builds to a vice-grip tension as small timers face the terror of big time killers...
As a cinematic confection from one of the masters, it's cotton candy, evaporating before it ever gets good.
unfunny and unthrilling
The Swindle might not be a deep film, but it makes no missteps in showing us the steps these two small time crooks take as they attempt to pull off a big time con.
Você pode até não rir durante a projeção, mas sairá do cinema com um sorriso de lado, admirado com a esperteza - e falta de escrúpulos - daquele casal tão simpático.
It's another wickedly humorous psychological thriller that provides a showy part for [Chabrol's] favorite star, Isabelle Huppert.
One of the better Chabrol thrillers of the 80s/90s thanks to it's sly humour and performance by Isabelle Huppert.
Light, sympathetic mildly twisted, cynic and amusing film from the french master of intrigue Claude Chabrol.
